Anyone have experience with Vincent hybrid gear and electrostatics?


I own a pair of ML ESL 11A’s and am looking at the Vincent SP-T 700 mono’s and the SV-T7 pre. Will appreciate any advice.

Not sure this helps, I own the Vincent SA-T8 & SP-T700 mono's. I have heard the SA-T7 Pre. Both are fine Pre-Amps.


The SP-T700 Mono's are quite nice hybrids, with a touch of warmth and a "punchy" Bass rather than the slam of my big SP-998 Mono's. 


At the moment I'm listening to my Vincent SA-T8 running direct into my fully active 'Stats", sounds great.


Whether the SP-T700 suits your "Stats" I don't know. Any way you can audition with your Speakers? They sound quite good with my Revel Ultima Studios. FWIW I have heard the SP-331MK with some small ML's and sounded fine.
Can’t audition my only real concern is the low impedance of the ML of 1 ohm and below can’t seem to find that stat on the spt 700
My thoughts are probably not. They are only specced down to 4 ohm.
Manual also states "if a second set of Speakers connected, both have a nominal impedence of at least 8 ohm!

What country are you in? The Vincent SP-998's would do that without breaking a sweat, and should sound great with ML's. To my knowledge there not available in the States.
Hi Mike,

Just did a search and see you are in Arizona? Unfortunately looks like it counts out the SP-998's. Good luck in your search.

I did find in SP-T700 manual. "Only use loudspeakers with a nominal impedence of at least 4 ohm."

I did some calling around and the sp t700 are available in the us just a matter of time . The 4 ohm state refers to the overall impedance of the speaker ie. 4 8 or 16 ohm resistance. The 700's will be able to meet the requirements of the ML's as the final stage is solid state the valves are only on the input stage of the amp. so good news is they will work just fine. Thanks for your input everything I learn is awesome with everyones help
Good luck Mike,

Hope they match well with your ML's.
I think they will. I have read a lot of reviews of the gear in other forums from people that are ML users and a lot of Maggie users that have had awesome reviews of this gear thank you for the support and advice
